LOOK CLOSELY AT ONLINE CHATTER AMID CONTROVERSY OVER AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN DETECTIVE STOPPED BY KANSAS CITY POLICE OFFICERS: HARDCORE PROGRESSIVES QUESTION HIS CASE AMID ANTI-COP RHETORIC!!!
Just check comments in this "Young Turks" clip . . .
A great many denizens of the discourse call the Detective a sellout or mistakenly claim that he "forgot" his identity.
A quick overview of the deplorable comments . . .
"You see they don't give a damn but you black police officers still protect them knowing they are racist."
"Just goes to show that black people aren't safe from white supremacist bullies even behind the badge."
"Black cops need to get through their head. Just becaise you help you white officers . . . Does not mean you are a cop in their eyes."
The teachable moment . . .
There might not be as much public support for this KCPD veteran as our newspaper would like to believe . . . Instead, anti-police rhetoric seems to overpower any hint of sympathy that a jury needs to award a big verdict and subsequent EPIC payout.
Just something to consider . . .
You decide . . .
